Summer 2022 fashion trends

By Amanda Koehn

This season, fashion is telling us to embrace bright colors and comfort with trends pointing toward vibrant hues and clothes that flow, appearing a bit more casual than we’ve seen in seasons past.

Some examples are sporty sandals, baggy jeans and flowy dresses. For a slightly dressier look, try a flatform sandal and outfits with details like exaggerated necklines and embroidery. For dressing up or down, don’t be afraid to make it colorful.

Need creative ideas? Local retailers like Knuth’s in Pepper Pike, J3 Clothing Company in Moreland Hills and Mar-Lou Shoes in Lyndhurst offer pieces to help select bold, bright and comfy choices this summer.
